COMMENTS:

Usually I make a joke or something lighthearted about the comic, but this one hits just a bit too close to home.

Oof.

Edit: MY MANS KEEPS HIS CHANGE IN THE WALLET?!?!?
BUT THEN I DID ANYWAYS!
Also I would like to say that I went to the mall today and saw jean jackets. I had automatically thought of this comic when I saw them. I was tempted to get one for myself.

hey, they're pretty easy to get patches on, pick one up at a thrift store or something and you're good for life
I actually adore the "closed caption" style text presentation on the bottom frames. I won't offer my own interpretation of what it means and why its presented that why, as to not influence other people's interpretations, but it's very interesting.

thanks! yeah, it's tempting to say what my intention with it was, but I'm sure people will find their own meanings from it
The signs in the background kind of remind me of when I was in the height of my ocd, because I thought advertisements on the bus were sending me secret messages (which I know is a very literal interpretation of what’s going on in the comic, but it was the first thing that came to mind). But it also resonates with me in the sense that they’re intrusive thoughts you can’t ignore, and I think that gets it across well in the signs, because you can’t help reading things that you see, like you can’t just stop intrusive thoughts.

I like that way of thinking about it. I have a hard time ignoring signs and things that I can read, even if I don't care what's written on them.
